2011 Bowl Predictions: Penn State Climbs, West Virginia, Pittsburgh Stand Pat

The Penn State Nittany Lions earned a win over Ohio State this weekend, and are right back in the thick of things in the Big Ten race. But there place in the Championship game isn't assured and the Lions could end up somewhere else this season.

According to our SB Nation Bowl Projections, the Nittany Lions could figure to play in the Outback Bowl against Georgia, or at least that's where we stand now.

The Pitt Panthers and the West Virginia Mountaineers did not play this weekend, neither of them moved around that much. West Virginia is slated to play Georgia Tech in the Belk Bowl, while Pitt isn't on the projections at all. Here are the complete projections. The asterisks mean the team is already slotted to play in that game.
